CITY Special Issue presentation: Durable Camps: the state, the urban, the everyday

 

  At the beginning of the 21st century, camps constitute an increasingly prominent feature of social landscapes across the world. There are different types of camp formations, such as, among others, refugee camps in Africa, the Middle East and Asia, Australia, Europe and the USA. Although regularly built as emergency devices for the management of displaced and undesirable populations, and justified as temporary necessities, camps often turn into durable socio-spatial formations whose logics of functioning and effects are articulated at the intersection of global, state and urban scales. In this talk, we introduce a special issue of the journal CITY, which we edited in 2015, and in which we offer a comprehensive and in-depth analysis of distinctive and varied camp formations in the Middle East, Western Europe and the USA.
